The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a report that says that cell phone use may cause brain cancer. A recent study has shown that people who use cell phones daily for at least 30 minutes over the course of 10 years increase their risk of developing cancer of the brain by 40% due to the radiation being given off by the device.

Dr. Samadi suggests ways to reduce the effect the radiation plays on your body including using a hands-free headset, holding the phone a minimum of one inch away from your ear, only using the phone in areas of good reception, and texting rather than talking. He also warns that children are at a higher risk due to the fact that their skulls are thinner, allowing more radiation to reach the brain, and because cells in children multiply more rapidly increasing the damage caused by radiation.

This is not a paid endorsement, even though it’s going to sound like one. This is just a true account of my experiences with the amazing Dr. David B. Samadi and his incredible staff in the time leading up to and following my recent robotic prostate removal surgery.

It was Dr. Samadi himself wanting to speak with both of us to find out exactly what we needed and how he could help us. Dr. Samadi was a true hero in this story. I love him for what he did and would recommend him to anyone who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
